Second stakeholder meeting on 28 November 2019

The revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) 2018/1844 requires the Commission to conclude a feasibility study, clarifying the possibilities and timeline to introduce the inspection of stand-alone ventilation systems and an optional building renovation passport before 2020. 

A reappraisal of studies by IEA may be useful

Record temperatures are measured in Europe, and with the planet getting hotter due to climate change, similar heatwaves are predicted to happen more frequently. It is useful to revisit some of the recent scientific studies that Eurovent also brought to it members in the past years. Industry may need to reappraise the climatic conditions and test equipment for temperatures that are higher than those in standards and regulation to keep up with market evolutions, also in Europe.

Heat recovery ventilation is expected to be a major ventilation solution

REHVA and Eurovent have released their guidebook on heat recovery ventilation. It includes the latest ventilation technology and knowledge about the ventilation system performance, intended to be used by HVAC designers, consultants, contractors, and other practitioners. This first joint guidebook of REHVA and Eurovent is part of an increasing cooperation between the two associations, with more publications and joint initiatives to follow.

Seminar to explain how to select EN ISO 16890 rated air filter classes for general ventilation applications while making effective use of its Indoor Air Quality potential

The registration procedure is provided within the article.

Eurovent Recommendation 4/23 constitutes a comprehensive guideline, which supports a swift transition away from EN 779 while making full use of potential EN ISO 16890 offers in terms of Indoor Air Quality

Brussels, 14 December 2017. The Eurovent Association has officially released the first edition of its long-awaited code of good practice Eurovent 4/23 (2017) on the “Selection of EN ISO 16890 rated air filter classes for general ventilation applications”. The publication is addressed to all HVAC professionals dealing with ventilation systems, particularly design consultants, facility managers and manufacturers of equipment incorporating air filters. It was jointly developed by participants of the Product Group ‘Air Filters’ (PG-FIL).

Indoor Air Quality references in the proposed revision by the ITRE Committee

On 11 October 2017, Members of the ITRE Committee of the European Parliament have adopted the draft report on the review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). In this article, we provide readers with an update on the references to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). 

Camfil to host high-ranking ‘Forum Trosa’

The first ever Forum Trosa will take place on 4 September 2017. It will offer an in-depth seminar programme on how the quality of the indoor air affects us. Myths, new research and what individuals and organisations can do. The event is a collaboration between Trosa municipality, situated some 70 kilometers south of the Swedish capital, Stockholm and our affiliated manufacturer Camfil. Eurovent and Swedish Ventilation association are contributing to the event.

Gain insights into the role of Indoor Environment Quality and HVAC systems in modern, sustainable building

Debate.Comfort.Construction.Energy 2017 (DKBE) is going to be a unique event merging experience and knowledge of various experts from the building industry in the unique setting of Warsaw’s national stadium. The conference will address a wide range of topics including Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ), principles of the building mechanical system design, and the impact of user behaviour on overall building energy consumption. The Eurovent Association is supporting and contributing to this forward-thinking conference.
